Meera Sam

Meera graduated from the University of Texas in May of 2022 with degrees in Government and Sociology and a minor in Arabic. Throughout her time at UT, she bridged her passion for research and advocacy, using qualitative methods to understand systemic issues affecting marginalized communities. She served as a research assistant for the Institute of Urban Policy Research and Analysis for two years and has presented  on topics such as social movement organizing, protest accessibility, and the impacts of surveillance on BIPOC activists. Having engaged in speech and debate since the age of 14, Meera represented the UT Speech Team at state and national tournaments, competing in prepared and extemporaneous event categories.

Meera has also worked with various community organizations in Austin, such as the Refugee Student Mentorship Program, Seedling, MOVE Texas, and Casa Marianella. She is passionate about using the law to provide redress to those whose rights are often ignored and violated. She is currently applying to law school in hopes of continuing this type of work in the long term.

Meera joined the Kaplan team in December of 2022.
